Is there any way of obtaining the area of an ellipse without using calculus?

If so, can I get a hint on how to do it?

I did a text search for a proof in "Conics" by Apollonius, but couldn't find one. If they couldn't prove it without calculus it means they had to wait until at least Newton's time to find the area of an ellipse?
